The first half ended goalless, as the visitors held their own at Old Trafford.

Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News confirmed both lineups, with United giving a start to Henrikh Mkhitaryan, while Marcus Rashford led the line up top.

Anthony Martial combined well with Lukaku on the counter in stoppage time to ensure of the victory and make it two games, two wins and two clean sheets to kick-off 2018.

The visitors' starting line-up confirmed Gary Rowett's predominant focus on the Championship this season, where his side are vying for automatic promotion to the Premier League and now sit in 2nd place.

Receiving the ball on the edge of the box, United's outstanding talent of recent weeks curled a majestic effort around a helpless Scott Carson in the Derby goal.

There would also be no shock if that turns out to be Mkhitaryan's final stand, another lacklustre showing.

Manchester United had the first attempt on goal through captain Pogba firing a straight shot at Carson in the second minute.

Meanwhile, Rowett responded to Mourinho's changes by finally bringing Vydra on with 23 minutes remaining.

However, with a replay suiting neither side both teams pushed forward for a victor and Lingard hit a great strike six minutes from time to put United ahead.

Jesse Lingard could have opened the scoring as early as the second minute after being setup by Paul Pogba, but his shot could not find the target.

Rashford saw Carson keep him out before again hitting a post ahead of a dragged shot from Pogba, to increasing frustration from the home supporters.

Derby Team to play Manchester United: Carson; Wisdom, Keogh, Pearce, Olsson; Thorne, Huddlestone; Weimann, Russell, Lawrence; Winnall.
